OMAHA – The first weekend in May is well-known for a lot of things (among others, yesterday was Star Wars Day (‘May the fourth/force be with you’) and is Cinquo de Mayo – Mexican independence day), but for keen investors, it’s the weekend of the Berkshire Hathaway AGM.
Not all Fools are value investors, but we all appreciate the mind-blowing investment returns that Warren Buffett has achieved.
I’m lucky enough to be attending this weekend’s ‘Woodstock for Capitalists’ in Omaha, Nebraska – the Cornhusker State (as if you didn’t know).
For those who can’t be there, we’re bringing you the next best thing – a full slate of Berkshire reading, and a live chat! Sure, the meeting is happening overnight Australian time, so if you’re awake you can catch it live, but you can also flick through it over coffee on Sunday morning, after the event.
Why care? That’s a great question. Buffett’s immense wealth – all self-made – gives us 44 billion reasons to care (that’s his estimated wealth in US dollars). On top of that Buffett has been incredibly open about how he invests and the things that he believes have made him successful.
Even if you don’t invest the way Buffett does, why not learn more from one of the best?
Without further ado, here’s our Best of Buffett:

Okay, now you’ve made it through all of that reading (it’s okay… just pretend), here’s the link to the Berkshire Hathaway AGM live-chat, bought to you with our friends from our sister site, fool.com:
If you’re there before 11pm AEST tonight you can subscribe to a reminder email (recommended if you think you’ll forget in the morning).
Otherwise, check back at that link from any time after 11pm for the live chat or tomorrow morning for an archive of what happened at this year’s Woodstock for Capitalists, as it happened.
Of course, we’ll bring you our own summary after the meeting, but the transcript will give you a much deeper sense of the meeting, and more detail than we’ll be able to cover in a couple of articles.
We hope you enjoy our ‘Best of Buffett’, and don’t forget to check back on fool.com.au for our updates from Omaha!
